EOTech XPS2-0 Holographic Weapon Sight Review
Typically, this sight is designed for fast target acquisition usually within a 100-yard range, which is suitable for most hunting situations. Many shooting experts recommend that you shoot with both eyes open especially in a tactical situation. The EOTech XPS2-0 allows shooters to keep both eyes open because of the dedicated focusing of the sight. The shooting eye is not strained when using the sight.

The optic sight is battery operated using a CR123 lithium battery. The sight can help shooters find and maintain their natural point of aim because of the way the EOTech is designed to help you find the target if you have to readjust your position. Anyone that uses a scope understands the problem of acquiring the target when looking through a scope and then focusing, which takes time, and in some situations, time is critical.
New shooters and experienced ones alike sometimes tend to focus on the red dot when shooting instead of the target. This problem is solved with the EOTech XPS2-0. Shooters find it is natural to be able to focus on the target and at the same time maintain target discipline.
Also, you can find a target in full sunlight where otherwise the glare would obscure the sight picture. The XPS2-0 is not designed for night shooting, but in low light, I find it is more than adequate for target acquisition.
It is recommended that you do zero your weapon after mounting the sight for best accuracy. Once zeroed the sights do not deviate even after several thousand rounds have been fired.
Do you need the EOTech XPS2-0 for your weapon? You do if you want increased accuracy, and to teach yourself how to maintain your natural point of aim. Targets are found much quicker and when hunting for food this is important because a missed shot may mean someone goes hungry. Typically, you would not use a scope in a rapidly developing combat situation but the EOTech XPS-0 is ideal for this type of situation. Scopes are used when in a stationary shooting position where return fire and multiple target acquisition are not as critical of an issue.
With the XPS2-0, you can engage multiple targets without having to fan the weapon to find the target, which is something you simply cannot do in a combat situation. The sights are such that you can shoot with both eyes open which is necessary for peripheral vision when keeping track of other shooters that may engage you.
Once you have the sights mounted, find your cheek weld and begin zeroing the weapon with the new sights even though many have stated that zeroing is not needed. It is recommended that you bench shoot when zeroing your weapon for best results.
